Photonics

  1. 1. IntroductionThe science of photonics includes thegeneration, emission, transmission,modulation, signal processing, switching,amplification, and detection/sensing oflight. The term photonics therebyemphasizes that photons are neitherparticles nor waves they have both particleand wave nature.
  2. 2. ApplicationsApplications of photonicsare ubiquitous. Included areall areas from everyday lifeto the most advancedscience, e.g. light detection,telecommunications,information processing,lighting, metrology,spectroscopy, holography,medicine, militarytechnology, laser materialprocessing, visual art,biophotonics, agriculture,and robotics.
  3. 3. Overview of PhotonicsThe science of photonicsincludes investigation of theemission, transmission,amplification, detection, andmodulation of light.
